Box Office Poison 票房毒药 by 忆锦 Yi Jin (HE)


Bai Mo Ran is the main protagonist in this novel. From her debut at the age of nineteen years old, then starring in the leading role in her first movie at twenty years old until twenty two years old this year, she has been filming continuously. She has experienced love on the screen and also suspended on wire; filmed comedy, as well as tragedy …… but the only thing unchanged is the box office – all also rotten.

Known as the industry’s most poisonous tongue entertainment publication “Big Mouth Burst Report” once commented her like this: “Bai Mo Ran as an actress, if you say she has got acting skills, nobody will be convinced. If you categorize her as an idol star, you’ll feel something is missing. The movies she filmed have no meaningful plots or box office successful. If you think she is a ‘flower vase’, you are thinking highly of her. She is simply box office poison.” She once thought, this is the most objective commentary on her since her debut.

Unfortunately, it existed  only for one day then it disappeared without a trace. Even the observant reporter, in the end was fired by the publisher. All these are not because she is lucky. It is because: she has got backer!

    I like Yi Jin’s style. Wonder what’s in her head to be able to write such stupid stories. Her guys are always brilliant, smart and rich while the girls are the opposite.

    Bai Mo Ran went from a flower vase to a good actress. Beside her, there is always her Boss who is also her boyfriend, Chen Li Qi. I don’t know how to summarize because so many stories (e.g. scandal, she was harassed on the filming set, was kidnapped by a silly fan….ETC). Worth to read, because the BOSS is very cute. This book is very silly.

    Once, CLQ warned her not to be too close to the actor (2nd male). But she didn’t listen to him, went out and had a meal with the actor. The actor had an allergic reaction to sea foods, they ended up in the hospital. Reporters were all there. CLQ, went to her rescue. He said that she is in the hospital with him (avoiding her to have scandal with the actor). But he suspiciously put one of his hand on her belly. hahaha (she is even more furious because she’s still a CN)

    Boss very cute, very bad, very jealous, very sweet. She uses her emotion, past experiences into acting. 1st time people praised her when she filmed a car accident scene. The director said it’s good… She was really into it (thinking abt her brother) and forgot to move. She ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks.

    I just finished this book and love it. The original ending is better than the revised version which’s kinda more melodrama. I thought the 2nd male lead has some liking for the gal, Yi Jin should have create some story here. It was a fun read, thanks for introducing. YJ latest book doesn’t seem to have good review, anyone have read it?

    A light-hearted read which makes for a funny read. I would recommend it to anyone who’s looking for something light and easy to read.

    My only complaint is that the writer never revealed why the Boss would take her in and turn her into a star. The ending in the published book revealed that her brother is actually the boss’ half brother or something – which is pretty much a boring, over-used plot and absolutely ridiculous – so that pretty much explains it I guess. But still, the story would be much more complete with this detail included.
